Coach Murunga speaks on Kenya 7s poor show in Sydney

Following Kenya’s dismal performance at the fourth round of the 2018-19 World Sevens Series in Sydney,Australia, head coach Paul Murunga bemoaned the inconsistency in the playing unit. 

According to Murunga, some key players who had played the opening two rounds in Dubai and Cape Town absconded duty, disrupting his plans.

Eden Agero, Leonard Mugaisi, Herman Humwa and Dennis Ombachi are among those who played in Dubai and Cape Town.

The quartet, however, pulled out of the Hamilton and Sydney assignments owing to a contract row with their employer, Kenya Rugby Union.

“It is a bit challenging;the first tournament we had some players who we had done work with and they dropped out,” Murunga said.

Shujaa lost all matches in Sydney, eventually picking a solitary point after finishing last.

This, coming on the back of collecting 7 points at the Hamilton 7s in New Zealand.

“We had to start afresh in Hamilton and Sydney. In terms of player profile and team profile it was more of a new side,” added Murunga.

Murunga charges have managed to amass 12 points thus far, an average if 3 in each leg.

The side’s next assignments are scheduled for March in Las Vegas and Vancouver.
